Yeah? What length of time is that, then? I sure as hell hope its longer than 12 freakin' hours. In fact, I'm sure it is, because I've seen forgotten hacks fester for weeks here, attachments removed, naive newbies wondering WTF is going on.

My point is, JumpD did not request that these release threads be taken down. He removed the attachments while he took a breather, with the explanation linked above.

A mod then took it upon himself to remove the threads in the meantime. For what? A some show of oneupmanship? This accomplishes nothing to quell the tension around here. In fact, it reinforces it. Some of the mods are making this personal.

I think this is the sort of behavior that is frustrating users and coders alike.

How long is "after a certain length of time"? Apparently, a matter of hours?

Otherwise, the thread would be continually bumped by users asking what happened to the release and/or coder, and the forum would be much harder to navigate through with many "dead releases".
Uh, so why not just lock the threads/archive 'em?

The behavior and attitudes on both sides of this issue are disgraceful. So a talented coder gets pissed off at one frustrated staffer's tactless comment and retaliates by harming the entire community, including people who have thanked and supported him. Then the mods immediately yank his threads to eliminate all traces of the guy, even though the very software they're supporting includes a very easy solution to prevent the terrible "bumping" feature.

Is this Jelsoft or Junior High? C'mon guys, you're all better than this bushwah.

This pretty much proves all points on what they think of individual coders. They were deleted to ensure that I could not change my mind and put them back up. They can make mistakes or make stupid or rude comments and we are expected to get over it. We do anything and it's existance removal time. vBORG, assimilated or eliminated.

Too bad all those abandoned hacks, that still have a crapy useless zip file, are getting bumped everyday. Maybe those should be eliminated.

yeah, I see no problem with just locking his threads... the information in there is very useful to the people that already have the mods installed...

He removed the attachments because he couldn't remove the threads. Very simple, he didn't have the rights to. And saying he's taking a "breather" is a assumption on your part. Who knows if he's coming back? You don't. I don't. So you can't say its just a breather.

Anyway, for your information as you seem pretty angry about this, the threads are not completly gone. If he decides to come back, we would be able to re-instate those threads if we decided to do so.

There's nothing left to add to this thread so I'm closing it. If you have any further queries please PM me.

I will still give a short comment on this since i was the Staff member that happened to remove them.

It has always been vBulletin.org policy to remove threads if the hack is withdrawn. If no file is attached it is not considered to be an active hack. Until now i never saw anybody complaining about that.

We never hard delete any thread, and if an author wants to publish his hack again, all he needs to do is ask for it to be restored and add the hack file again. Again this is nothing new and has always happened.

Since JumpD himself announced that he would withdraw his hacks, the policy was followd as usual.

PS I know that there are more threads that don't contain the hack files anymore, and they will be handled if spotted by staff or reported by a member.
